What motivated you to start your journey?
It took me a year to get myself together and get focused back on my health, my daughter motivated my journey.
How has What Waist helped your journey?
After having my daughter, I spiraled into a really bad case of postpartum depression.
The next 5 years of my journey was not easy at all. A year and a half I ended up tearing my L5 and S1. That injury had me sit out for a while, until I could get the pain under control. I never saw my injury as a reason to stop but more so a reason to keep going and not go back.
At that point, I had lost around 85 from a whopping 356. I also imagined the pain possibly being wore if I did have that extra weight to carry around.
Once I got cleared, I got back to working out. I was determined to get to my goal of 199 pounds. Once I hit my goal, I just started feeling uncomfortable working out. Let’s be real, the excess skin after losing over 100 pounds is sometimes hard to hide and even more embarrassing during workouts.
That’s when I saw What Waist tagged in a photo. I always wanted to give a waist trainer a try, but this one completely sold me with all the reviews.
I was so excited when it came in the mail and tried it on as soon as I opened it. The fit was so precise, I used the fit calculator on the website. Once I got to working out with it, I notice a difference in my back pain after each workout. My waist trainer was giving me support I didn't realize I needed for my back. I absolutely love and recommend What Waist to everyone that ask about waist trainers or when they see it in a photo.
